Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.

Of Books and Dogs
Books, books, books. I can't help it - I can't resist buying books, books, books. I also have a Kindle, but much prefer holding a Real Book. Some of these books are kept forever and some are donated.
Last week I vowed: No more books until I finish reading the ones stacked beside the bed.
Today I bought:
So much for vows.
Have I also mentioned this book (link below): S.O.A.R., animal rescue stories by Jack Floyd? S.O.A.R. stands for Southport-Oak Island Animal Rescue, and Jack is a long-time volunteer there. I'm partial to it because I know the author, but you might want to check it out. [It's an ebook; the link below is for iTunes, but you can also get it elsewhere.]
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
